..and there i was starting to form some kind of respect for you guys!
gee the girls round your neighbourhood must be rough! you wanna visit brighton..your eyes would pop out your head! :shock:
ok leaving the 'girl factor' out of it for a minute...did you see how little coffee she put in that press?..and what on earth was that 'coffee'!? what made me laugh though was the way she was talking about how people look at the french press and just can't fathom out what they are...come on...even my kid sister can explain what it does and could probably get a lot better results at using it too. oh well...made me laugh 8)

I also liked the "When using a french press you must use coarse-grinded coffee." :wink:

A person in my laboratory always made her tea with a French press. I don't know if she realised that the lid goes up and down, but she also added instant coffee to the "Americanos" that came out of the superauto, so I guess it doesn't matter. :P

I decided I needed a bit of a change so I roasted some Monsooned Malabar. That was a change!

:lol: quality!

The problem I have with youtube is I can never make my mind up as to whether the comments are worse than the videos themselves...
Some people have too much time and really need to get out more! This poor vid (whilst amusing to us) is just crying out for a parody where somebody explains how to make a cup of tea with.... a tea bag! Cos, I mean, a lot of people might have seen these around, and not actually know what they are :shock: :? :lol:
This week I are feeling sleepy!
